White butte north dakota s highest point

White Butte is the highest natural point in the U.S. state of North Dakota. At an elevation of 3,506 ft (1,069 m), it is a prominent butte in Slope County, in the Badlands of the southwestern part of the state. It is located 3 miles (5 kilometers) east of US 85 and about 6.5 mi (10 km) south of Amidon.

The nearest town is Amidon, about seven miles to the northwest. The summit is located within the boundaries of the Little Missouri National Grassland and is about 35 miles (56 km) south of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It is on private property, owned by the Dennis family who live nearby. At the trailhead, the family maintains a small mailbox-like receptacle for donations to help maintain the area, and requests a $5 contribution from visitors.

The Killdeer Mountains, 75 miles (121 km) to the north, rise 900 feet (270 m) from their foothills, but are 225 feet (69 m) shorter than White Butte.
